Word Of the Day: Euresia

Eurasia = Europe + Asia

Eurasia is the combined continental landmass of Europe and AsiaThe term is a portmanteau of its two constituents. 
(Portmanteau means blending of two words or their sounds to make another new word) 

The division between Europe and Asia as two different continents is a historical and cultural construct, with no clear physical separation between them; thus, in some parts of the world, Eurasia is recognized as the largest of five or six continents
